Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: How old were you at your first Dead show?

I was also 19 at my first show (Soldier Field '93). It was the summer after my freshman year in college and it was also my first road trip that wasn't a family vacation. We drove from Topeka, Kansas to Chicago, and the parking lot scene at Soldier Field was almost as amazing as the concerts. The GD experience definitely had positive impact on my life, from the friends that I've made to the jobs that I've had to the places that I've lived. If not for the Grateful Dead my life would be much blander and I wouldn't have had many of the best experiences of my life.
